LIVONIA–The construction and heavy equipment dealer Alta Equipment Group Inc. (NYSE: ALTG) (“Alta”) announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Midwest Mine Services LLC, a privately held company headquartered near Toledo, Ohio.
Midwest Mine Services designs, fabricates, and installs full aggregate processing plants for quarries, mines and recycling operations throughout the United States and is well-established in the Ohio and Michigan markets.

“Strategically, this acquisition expands our expertise in a construction end market with ever-increasing demand for high-end engineering and design services,” said Alta CEO Ryan Greenawalt. “Our current presence with customers in the aggregate processing industry will help drive synergies and cross selling opportunities between Midwest Mine and our existing business. The company has the ability to operate across the entire United States, which will allow us to deploy Midwest Mine’s solutions throughout our footprint and beyond. Midwest Mine Services also fits well with Alta’s culture as it has built an outstanding record of delivering custom solutions and high-quality service. We welcome Bob Keaton and his entire team to the Alta family.”
Midwest Mining Services generated approximately $17 million in revenue and had adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization of approximately $1.3 million for the trailing-12-month period ended July 2021. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
